Is Suboxone statistically considered to help please the addict taking it or is it just a poor excuse to make money on as well as enable the user?

Is Suboxone statistically considered to help please the addict taking it or is it just a poor excuse to make money on as well as enable the user?

It is a great tool.: As a recovering physician who treats addiction, i used to be all about the steps. But opioid dependence kills many young people. Suboxone has unique properties that eliminate the obsession to use opioids, allowing patients on it to feel normal. The best view is to see it as a 'remission agent'. As for money, if it was a great deal for docs, there wouldn't be a shortage of prescribers. ...Read more

I eat like a monster just to gain weight but it is still not working. I read about a case where some nutrients go to waste, can it be my case as well?

I eat like a monster just to gain weight but it is still not working. I read about a case where some nutrients go to waste, can it be my case as well?

Unlikely but see Dr.: If one is truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a dr. Can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder. If no medical cause is found, then one can add weight by eating more calories of nutritious foods, while also doing weight-training to increase muscle. Proteins: egg white, chicken breast, salmon, ... Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu, .... ...Read more

Is hypnosis real or fake? If it is real, how is it possible for people to fall in to this spell to become and do things they normally do not do?

Is hypnosis real or fake? If it is real, how is it possible for people to fall in to this spell to become and do things they normally do not do?

It can be very real: People can fake things, but - especially licensed therapeutic hypnosis - is very real and often effective. Things not normally done are not = to things morally offensive. Types of resistance are lower, but not moral/ethical discrimination. The process happens to some degree every day. Being very absorbed in reading, music, fantasy, etc. Is similar. Only the 'guide' of the suggestions is different. ...Read more

If i good at playing as a goalkeeper that have faster brain reaction than my friend is this is the thing that can tell that im cleverer than my friend?

Probably not, but...: It all depends on how one defines "cleverer". Everybody is good at something, or some things. The goal in life is to fine what one is good at, or can learn to be good at, and hope that talent is something one enjoys, plus is something that helps others in a person's community and the world we live in. ...Read more

Trying to have a baby should we have sex daily or is it better to let it build up? Does it matter?

Trying to have a baby should we have sex daily or is it better to let  it build up? Does it matter?

Timing Sex for Baby: A general rule is to have sex every other day during your fertile time. When you ovulate the egg, it can be fertilized for about 18 hours. The sperm live in your body for about 2-3 days. If a man has normal semen then i suggest that you not worry if you are in the mood for more but with low sperm count, too much can be a problem. Check ovulation timing for efficiency. Good luck. ...Read more

The : The purpose of any brace or brace system is to provide a way to transmit the force from the wire to the teeth. Whether one type of brace vs. Another (in-ovation or other) will "work", meaning "move your teeth", should not worry you. They all "work"! however, each brace type is designed with different features that can enhance the orthodontic experience, help you keep your braces cleaner, or help reduce the amount of time you are in the office for your adjustment appointments. If you have any specific concerns or would like more information about why your orthodontist uses a specific brace type, you should feel free to ask and they will be happy to answer your questions! congratulations and good luck on starting the journey towards a new smile :). ...Read more
